It is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once daily. Practicing proper dental hygiene will help to prevent dental issues like tooth decay. If you develop cavities easily, Dr. J. Richard Burch may recommend Fluoridex Daily Defense®, a line of prescription-strength toothpastes. Fluoridex contains more fluoride than regular toothpastes to help protect and strengthen your teeth.
